Get Involved

There are several ways to get involved with NCIP’s work. We engage with supporters by partnering with corporations and law firms, speaking out in the community, and employing skilled volunteers. Join the innocence movement today by following us on social media or by making a tax-deductible donation.

NCIP works with many key stakeholders – law firms, corporate counsel, corporate foundations, and leadership – to run a pro bono program that enables professionals to render legal services; improve legal skills like interviewing, research, and litigation; embark on new challenges; collaborate with other professionals, students, and clients; seek professional development; and seek MCLE credit.

NCIP experts and exonerees are available to come to speak to community & business organizations, schools, and other groups. Request here.

Volunteers & Interns

NCIP works with a limited number of volunteers and interns on case work, policy work, fundraising, and communications. Due to the confidential nature of our work, volunteer and internship positions often require an in-office presence.

With the uncertainty surrounding the current COVID19 situation, NCIP is pausing in-person volunteering and internships until further notice. NCIP and the entire Santa Clara University community have been instructed to work remotely for the foreseeable future and NCIP’s current set-up would make it extremely difficult for us to properly oversee a volunteer/internship program. However, we offer remote volunteer opportunities, check here.

If you have questions about volunteer/internship positions or programs, please send your inquiry to
